Hi, all.

Been a RedHat admin, currently looking at SLES 9.

I've installed on a Dell Power Edge 2800 with a dual port Intel Gigabit adapter built in.

Two problems:

1) eth0 is configured, ifconfig says it's up. It can ping itself via it's configured IP address, but cannot ping anything else on the net, nor can anything else ping it. ethtool eth0 says "Link detected: no". I verified that the TP cable and switch port works with another (windoz) computer.

2) SLES doesn't seem to see the second NIC.

Any thoughts?
